This book started out strong - interesting main character, fast paced beginning, plenty of foreshadowing of things to come and mysteries of the past to unravel.
Unfortunately the past wasn't the only thing to unravel.
The main character, Nicki, is a strong heroine with unique psychic talents and a strong sense of self.
Michael, the vampire hero, was interesting at first but soon became ineffectual to the story and to Nicki.
Even with his knowledge of his enemy (he's been chasing him for years) & his own vampiric powers he never seemed to be much of a challenge for Jasper (the evil vampire). He was constantly in the wrong place and never seemed to be much help in the tough situations.
Also, the romance seemed lackluster and forced. Attraction but no major sparkage.
There is no comparing this book to those written by Huff and Hamilton - where they constantly have/leave you wanting more I was hard pressed to finish this story (something that doesn't happen very often).
To be fair, I also found several publishing mistakes in the book that detracted from the story. (i.e. a character pours two cups of coffee than two sentences later pours two cups of coffee.)
I usually don't nitpick on publishing errors but some of these were just to big to ignore. Between the writer, publisher, copy editor, etc. you'd think someone would have caught the more telling mistakes.
My final take is: I might read the sequel, or I might not - which isn't a very high recommendation in my book!
